The signs are everywhere when you understand the bigger big picture; and you know what to look for:…
…”As places like The Times and other once-great journalistic institutions betray their standards and lose sight of their principles, Americans still hunger for news that is accurate, opinions that are vital, and debate that is sincere. I hear from these people every day. “An independent press is not a liberal ideal or a progressive ideal or a democratic ideal. It’s an American ideal,” you said a few years ago. I couldn’t agree more. America is a great country that deserves a great newspaper.”
Ms. Ali Watkins was at Buzzfeed when she received the 82 pictures, one per page, of the March 17, 2017, unredacted FISA application from SSCI Director James Wolfe. Ms. Watkins then parlayed that information, through Weiss, to get a gig at the New York Times. Soon after, to cover their tracks, the NYT filed a FOIA request for the document they had obtained unlawfully.
On July 21, 2018, having purposefully tanked the Wolfe case grand jury by withholding FBI evidence (June 7, 2018 indictment); the Mueller team fulfilled the FOIA request using the Wolfe leak copy to cover the tracks of the previous NYT reporting.
